I’m A Celeb’s Tony Hadley hits BACK at Lady C’s bullying claims: “This is pure fantasy”

The I’m A Celebrity campmates have been absorbing the fallout from Lady Colin Campbell – Lady C if you prefer – deciding to quit the jungle just hours after her friend Chris Eubank got voted out.

But in the wake of claims Lady C walked out not because of ‘medical’ issues, as was first reported, but because of ‘bullying’ by Duncan Bannatyne and Tony Hadley, Tony has hit back at the nasty allegations.

Speaking to heatworld through his manager, the Spandau Ballet singer said: “These allegations are pure fantasy – the whole nation has witnessed how Lady C has continually made vile and hurtful comments towards various campmates.

“To make accusations of bullying and biased editing is unbelievable, and disrespects both the show and the millions of fans who have tuned in and voted night after night.”

Yep. Kinda does, doesn’t it.

It comes after Lady C’s son Dima tweeted to say his mum was “fine” after her jungle ordeal, which seemed to contradict what ITV had said about her leaving the jungle on “medical grounds”.

Lady C was one of the show’s most controversial characters in its 11-year history, dividing the campmates and even refusing to carry out Bush Tucker Trials because she didn’t want the people she didn’t get on with to benefit from the food she’d win.

Who do you think was in the right? Let us know over at @heatworld right now.
